Ferguson, MO – Since 2010, the Ferguson Twilight Run has brought together friends, neighbors, families, runners and walkers from throughout the community. The more than 1,900 registered for this year’s event were able to see what community feels like even with the deep wounds still facing the region. St. Vincent Home for Children put together a team for the 2015 run, pictured above. While it was hot, participants successfully rose to the challenge.

From the first race in 2010, Ferguson Twilight Run has donated proceeds to support the community. This year, in memory of our friend and Ferguson Twilight Run planning committee member, we renamed the beneficiary award to the Donnie White Sr. Memorial Ferguson Twilight Run Award. The 2015 beneficiaries include:
• The Emerson Family YMCA receives $6,000 to benefit their camp scholarship.
• Marygrove receives $3,000 to benefit its Recreation Therapy Program.
• The St. Vincent Home for Children Creative Learning Annex receives $2,250.
• The Girls on the Run St. Louis – Bermuda Elementary Scholarship Fund receives $1,500.
• The Ferguson Youth Initiative receives $1,500 to benefit their Ferguson Earn-a-Bike program.
• Friends of Ferguson Disc Golf receives $750 toward installation of a 9-hole disc golf course at Hudson Park.
The Ferguson Twilight Run is hosted by Live Well Events. For more information on Live Well Events and the other programs, visit www.LiveWellEvents.org
